"Central mountains/ Manti / San Rafael "


Hello all,

New to the forum, I'm from az and drew muzzleloader central mtns/ manti tag. I have absolutely no idea where to start, if any one would be kind enough to point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. I'm not looking for anyone's honey hole or secret spots... just looking for a good starting point. Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

Skyline drive. Pick a canyon that looks good to you. Go
From there... there's animals all over that unit

+1 for the skyline drive

If you don't want to drive as far from AZ check out the Great Western Trail that turns into the Skyline drive as you get further north, Willow Creek Road, or Salina Creek Road for access to the southern portion of the unit. Like mentioned above, pick a canyon that looks good and hunt it.

My 17 year old son has the same tag this year. That mountain has elk in almost every canyon. The Manti's have elk in nearly every canyon that the sheep are not in. Just listen for bugles, glass, and keep at it until you find one you would be happy with. Tons of rag horns running around so you just need to pick through those to get a better one.

Thank you all for the advice! It helps tremendously! Is the lower desert country any good?

For elk, It depends on the section of lower desert country. Most of the lower elevation is private property so it's difficult for access. There are definitely sections that hold elk but not nearly in the numbers the higher elevations do.

As far as deer go, there are decent numbers pretty much all over the unit. Same as elk, there seem to be higher numbers in general at higher elevation but it all depends on the location.

There is definitely a lot less competition in the lower elevations.

How was your hunt? Did you see many Deer/Elk based off the information that was provided?

Gen Deer starts soon and were itching to get back up there.
